The cannibals decimate a number of the safari members in a succession of attacks, and only Taylor, the sexy lady doctor, and a photograph, rich the cannibal tribe - only to discover that she is now the wife of the tribe leader, and considered a goddess.

In a DVD interview for 'Sexo Canibal', Jess Franco says that he hated the cannibal genre, and after his two cannibal films, he would never shoot another, as it was just a popular phase of cinema with the directors Umberto Lenzi and Ruggero Deodato. See more »
Are you Mr Martin?
May we sit with you?
It's a public place.
I'm told that you know the Malavi region very well; better than you know the palm of your own hand.
No. Leave the palms of my hands out of it. It'd be impossible to know that region in depth.
Who would know it, then?
Only the Gaevis know it well.
That's just who we're looking for.
The Gaevis? Well, in that case, you people better look for somebody else around here.

Al Cliver plays a researcher who heads into the jungle with his wife and young daughter. They are attacked by a group of cannibals with the wife being eaten and the daughter kidnapped but Cliver escapes with only an arm cut off. Flash forward ten years and Cliver heads back into the jungle to locate his daughter who is now a goddess to the cannibals. It's true that Franco would be hired to jump on a bandwagon whenever a certain genre got hot and that's the case with this French film that tries hard to follow in the footsteps of various cannibal films from Italy. If you hated those Italian films due to the graphic nature of the violence, which included animals killings then you might get something more out of this sense it's violence free towards animals. With that out of the way this film is still pretty bland as Franco seems to forget (or didn't know) what made those Italian films work and that's that they played out well as adventure films. That's not the case here as the story is pretty bland and there's nothing to really keep you glued to the film. The performances are all rather bland but the attractive cast does feature Cliver, Lina Romay, Robert Foster and Pamela Stanford. Sabrina Siani plays the grown up daughter and at least walks around nude to keep things moving. The incredibly bad English dubbing makes for some laughs especially when Franco shows up sounding like a cowboy from Texas. The cannibals themselves are all laughable with their horrible body paint and silly dances but hey, this is a low-budget Franco film.
